I think your Leupold scope will need repairing. That problem does not seem to me to justify any other recourse or attempts.
On the other hand, repairing it will (it seems, upon investigation) NOT cost you money - it is protected by a lifetime guarantee:
The place to send for servicing or replacement under that lifetime guarantee, and instructions, are here:
and the address, again, is
Leupold & Stevens, Inc.Attn: Product Service Dept.14400 NW Greenbrier ParkwayBeaverton, OR 97006
If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated!
